Video: MARILYN MANSON Has Melt Down On Stage & Storms Off; Fans Are Demanding Refunds
Marilyn Manson did not enjoy his time in Huntington, NY last night. Well, maybe he did, but his fans certainly didn't. We hearing reports that Manson only played somewhere between four and seven songs last night, some of which were cut short. According to a report on Newsday, the only songs Manson actually got through without issue were “The Reflecting God,” “Deep Six” and “This is the New Shit.” That's when things went haywire.
There is video that has surfaced. Here you have Manson babbling for a few minutes, while his band tries to play along under his ramblings:
Here is a clip of just sheer jibberish. It's hard to tell if Manson is drunk, on prescription drugs or perhaps something else entirely:

We tried seeing Marilyn Manson tonight. We have seen him on 4 other occasions and he always entertained. This time due to being drugged, drunk, or sick unfortunately this concert was a complete failure. I know what you’re going to say but it is sad to see a complete spiral downward of a human due to drugs/drinking, which might have been from being in pain from his accident a few months ago. Marilyn please get the help you need and we will see you next time and we do love you 🙁 #marilynmanson
The concert was so short, some people were able to capture the entire event in one Youtube clip:
After four "songs," the crowd was getting restless and started chanting "Fuck You, Manson"
Fans have been taking to Twitter to demand refunds from the venue:

Marilyn Manson just does not have good luck in New York. He had to delay the better portion of this tour after his last New York show was cut short this past November, when a piece of the set fell on the shock rocker as he was performing "Sweet Dreams." It looked like Manson grabbed onto the gun prop and slipped and was immediately crushed by the set piece. The music stopped and the show was cancelled shortly after. Video of the incident can be seen here. Photos from the show can be seen in our photo gallery.
Manson was taken to the hospital, as photos showed, and eventually was diagnosed with a broken leg. Manson had a plate and 10 screws inserted into the bone and another screw through his ankle bone. But, he finally returned to the stage in San Bernardino, as one of the headliners of Knotfest. And, it was a newsworthy appearance. The most notable moment during Manson's return was the very beginning, when he was wheeled out carrying a prop semi-automatic weapon and pointing it at the gun and mock shooting the crowd.
At the time, Manson said he was making a political statement. “In an era where mass shootings have become a nearly daily occurrence, this was an act of theater in an attempt to make a statement about how easily accessible semi-automatic weapons are and how seeing them has become normalized. My art has always been a reaction to popular culture and my way to make people think about the horrible things that happen in this world. My performance was not meant to be disrespectful or show any insensitivity. The prop microphone I used on stage was handed to me with the approval of a police officer. My empathy goes out to anyone who has been affected by the irresponsible and reprehensible misuse of REAL guns.”
